BLAINE, Wash. - A Washington State Patrol trooper says the driver of a FedEx tractor-trailer rig lost control of his truck on Interstate 5 after choking on some spicy pork rinds, jackknifed and came to a stop in a muddy ditch.

Trooper Keith Leary says 42-year-old Edward Sutherland of Mount Vernon suffered minor injuries Monday. Leary says the man was driving his rig southbound from Blaine when he began choking and veered from the southbound lanes across the median into northbound lanes.

The trooper says the truck didn't hit any vehicles. Leary says the driver will be cited for driving with wheels off the roadway.
